    2nd grade project ... Gallon Man.

  • Cassie Frank

    Mr gallon man! I did this during student teaching.

  • Elisa Selena Morey

    Gallon Man: -5 sheets of construction paper (different colors) One will be for his head, one will be kept whole and labeled "gallon". The next sheet will be folded into fourts, cut, and labeled "quart". Then, fold another sheet into eighths, cut, and label "pint". Finally, fold the last sheet into sixteenths, cut, and label "cup". Students have a ball making these, and stay focused. When trouble comes your way (in math), call for Gallon Man to save the day!

    What a great way to remember! This always worked really well - just needed lots of prep time - we called him Gallon Man or Measurement Man!
